Many of Under Two Flags' button-down shirts combine detailed tailoring with cowboy-inspired cut and stitch panels across the shoulders—an old tailor trick to keep shirts tough and allow movement by brawny men. The colors are subtle and sturdy in distressed blue denim and khaki.
Under Two Flags may be a men’s streetwear brand at heart, but founder Scott Langton has flipped the genre on its head with his distinctive approach to clothing design. Every season, Langton and the Under Two Flags team choose a specific theme to explore — a process that has produced an eclectic collection featuring everything from a preppy-ish varsity pea coat, a toggle pullover sweater and a navy blue rain coat to the patriotic “stars and stripes” sweater (which substitutes mustard yellow for red) and rocker-chic denim jackets. Based in NYC, Under Two Flags designs its garments to feel good and look great, but above all, endure heavy wear and tear.
Although Under Two Flags specializes in traditional American clothes with a twist, it also manages to throw in some surprises. The preview, for example, includes a button-down shirt reminiscent of an 18th Century riding shirt, with rounded corners and front paneling. The jeans also reflect a unique touch: a 19th Century railroad spike was used to give them a stonewashed look.

The cacophonous movement represents the clash of American states, red and blue, in Mohammed Fairouz's his fourth symphony. Inspired by Art Spiegelman's graphic novel of the same name, the piece gives sound to the charged aftermath of 9/11..25.
